so cute! threading through the styro, especially if its hard styrofoam, can be a real pain! Unless you drill a hole through all of the balls beforehand.
I'd probably just sew a little tack or zig-zag stitch where the ends of the wrappers come together

Seems to me you could use polyfill rolled into round shapes. Then all you would need is a long needle to drive the thread directly through the candy to string.

Great idea!  We have two new kitties this year and our three year old, so this is nice - been looking for unbreakable and non-shiny tree decs.  Thank you!

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

jennyleigh: that's an awesome idea. But the I bought a bag of 12 small Styrofoam balls for a buck so I think the wooden bead idea may be a lot of cash. At least where I live.

HSG: those felt ones are cute too! I think due to the thickness of felt they would be more difficult to make.

Cherry_Chickentoes: They're a bit smaller than a golf ball.

acupofjoy: I'd be honoured! Thank you!

Well, I finished stringing the bonbon garland tonight. And I must say, it was much easier than I had anticipated.

The only change I'd suggest is this: instead of hot gluing the part that's twist, I'd try using a small piece of a twist tie. I think that would be so very much easier. And it would be faster, and no hot glue burns... yippee!!



Here's the completed garland. It's about 6 feet long.

This is a great idea and a fantastic way to use up the cheery little fabric scraps I can never throw away! Good job!
